Rising Sun's regatta day raises £2,800 for weir revamp
The regatta recently held at the Rising Sun in Pensford, has raised a massive £2,800 towards the renovations of the old weirs.
Jo and Mike Drury, new owners of the 17th century pub, have been planning to renovate the weirs, which are part of the backdrop to the pub.
The regatta afternoon included tugs of war, a duck race, a boat race and live music in the evening.
Jo said: "We had an amazing day and it got better and better. The cake stand went down a treat with over £200 raised – so a big thank you to everyone who baked a cake."

She added: "We haven't got any more events planned yet, but are hoping that the foundations can be done with the money we raised at the regatta, and we will see what's left over."
